when i was a tiny baby queer (aka a 24-year-old), i went to my first pride festival probably three months after i kicked ex-gay therapy to the curb and came out to my parents. being the people they are, my parents came with me. they weren’t really sure about this whole gay thing, but they loved me and wanted me to be safe and happy and wanted to be involved in what was important to me, so they came along. (i also think my mother still might have thought i might get drugged or murdered or beaten by a protester of which there were plenty.)
anyway i wanted a memento of my first pride, you know, and this one vendor was selling keyrings, and i liked it, so i bought one. do you remember those italian charm bracelets that were all the rage like 10-15 years ago? it was a keychain like that, and it had a rainbow rooster, a rainbow cat, and then just a rainbow, and so I bought it.
i run into my mom a couple of vendors over and she goes oh you bought something? what’d you get? so i showed her, and i was like, “I’m not sure why it’s a rooster and a cat. Seems kind of random. But I liked the rainbows.”
and my mom, who was some form of minister’s wife for most of my childhood and teenagerhood, stares at me like she thinks i’m joking.
“What?” i say.
“…it’s a cock and a pussy, Jules,” she says flatly, and that is the story of how i died at the age of 24 while attending my first pride festival.
Does anyone remember that game that was once on gamefudge about dragons? Basically, it was a pixelated game where you start in a castle. You can be healing, fire, or ???. Blue green and red. You grow up in the castle and can choose to murder or heal people. You then are in the town. ?? ahhh???
I do not remember what it’s called, please help D:
edit for those who won’t see the reply: it was found, thank you!!! <3
do MoC dating white girls bother you? Because like it bothers me and idk if that makes me awful or not? Like date who you want but it just bugs me because like ... why can't people see the beauty in black women too? idk i think im just bitter because i know like abunch of white girls with awful attitudes but they can get away with it and all the guys here love that shit, meanwhile if i don't smile for two seconds, i get called out for "mean mugging all the time."
It bugs me when it’s obvious they date white women because of bad attitudes about WoC or because they think being with white women is winning some sort of jackpot. Plus, white girls get brave about disrespecting WoC because their ashy boyfriends enable them
And specifically speaking, all nonblack women do this to Blacl Women
My guilty pleasure is all those episodes of trashy 90′s daytime talk shows where the parents bring their alternative teens in all like “My Child Has Turned Into A Freak, Please Help Me Fix Them By Being Mean To Them On National Television”.
I like watching them on Youtube, and twice now I’ve seen them uploaded by the very former teens featured in those episodes. Take a look at what Alan Jr. (from the Ricki Lake show):
and Sunnie (from the Jenny Jones show) are looking like then vs. now:
I love that after all these years and even after being publicly humiliated by their own parents on TV they still haven’t changed & their still doing their thing and being rad as hell. Love these folks <3
If you would like one ($10) send me a PM and I’ll link you to my store page.
At the moment, since this is my first time doing this king of thing, I’m only taking 5 orders and only shipping within the United States. Just until I’m more confident that I have the shipping process down correctly.
alright kiddos gather ‘round because @lack–two asked we’re gonna talk about the good ol’ days of the pokémon roleplay confessional. it was basically an excuse to vague people, you know, as confessionals are - and, on occasion, send compliments, but like…. yeah.
i never had an especially bad experience, but of course I had one because you didn’t have a presence in the community until someone vagued you on the confessional those days. the two cases were, a. back when i made a whole slew of AU blogs (my witch!lyra and galactic!dawn being two of the biggest) and someone complained that “some people” were making AUs with no resemblance to the actual character as an excuse to be non-canon or something, idk. I laughed it off.
the worse time was when there was a bit of a dispute regarding someone being salty over ppl using real-world dates as inspiration for in-universe stuff (like “why would there be a unovan fourth of july that’s stupid”) and, y’know, this was the first summer I was on Adair and I was talking about said headcanons at the time so obviously I was… less than encouraged and ranted @ my friends over skype about it later because it killed my mood, along with other shit goin’ on at the time irl that did Not Help. anyway after I got it out of my system I just kinda moved on and figured that was that, whatever. untilllll the next day someone (i never did find out who) sent in something to the confessional vaguing about “headcanon bashing” and like…. while i’m p sure it was none of my friends, i still wound up getting wrapped up in it and it was all just not fun. there was kind of a reason i didn’t write much worldbuilding stuff on adair for a while lol….. ;;
